Building more than blocks of life

Abstract:
Using the DNA as a construction element in nanoscale architecture, the team at NCBS led by Dr Yamuna Krishnan hopes to build molecular machines.

The DNA (Deoxyribonucleic acid), first isolated by the Swiss physician Friedrich Miescher in 1869, and subsequently made famous by Watson and Crick by their discovery of the structure of DNA in 1953 (for which they were awarded the Nobel Prize for Physiology/Medicine in 1962), is now acquiring a new avatar and is opening up new vistas in the field of nanoscience and technology.
